Drs. Jeffrey Tully and Christian Dameff are physicians first and computer hackers second.
They have dabbled in medical applications for Google Glass, discussed human augmentation concepts at Def Con — one of the world’s largest hacking conventions — and published research on what would happened to a city’s 911 computer system if it were breached.
They are graduates of the Class of 2014 of the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix. Tully recently finished a pediatric residency at Phoenix Children’s Hospital and Dameff completed a residency in emergency medicine at Maricopa Medical Center. Next for Tully is a three-year residency in anesthesiology at the University of California, Davis. For Dameff, it’s a clinical informatics fellowship at University of California, San Diego.
